This talk explores ignorance as the first link in the circle of suffering or samsara.

From my experience I see that Ignorance appears at various levels.

  1. Not knowing the 4 noble truths – really knowing.
  2. Not knowing the true nature of the self construct
  3. Not knowing the true nature of external phenomena (all sense objects)
  4. Believing that any views one holds about reality is the actual reality of life. i.e. believing that emptiness is true.
